by a small and savage group, not the people or government of libya. but let me be clear. there is no justification for this. none. violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith. >> the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutdal acts. these four americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake. justice will be done. >> this attack on american individuals and embassies is outrageous. it's disgusting. it breaks the hearts of all of us. we cannot hesitate to use our influence in the region to support those who share our values and our interests. >> now, all of this has sparked a political firestorm between the two campaigns. we'll have more on that later on in the show and talking now, 200 additional marines specializing in security on the way to the u.s. embassy in tripoli. military is considering sending similar troops to other embassies across the region and the u.s. embassy in afghanistan is asking afghan officials for help maintainin
. >> the two areas we need to be concerned about are the most obvious ones. number one, north africa, libya, algeria and egypt and number two syria. i think that's the big story here, is syria. up until a few days ago, all the chatter taking place on terrorist web forums and on chat rooms was all about syria. about people going to fight there and waging jihad there. there is this idea among would be al qaeda types that syria is the next afghanistan. now, there's a lot of complexity to that conflict, and i certainly don't want to suggest that everyone who is fighting assad is a terrorist or jihadists. there are a lot of very, very extreme people headed there, and the question is is that what happened after they're done in syria? what happens next? what do they do next? the concern is they could take part in operations across the middle east targeting u.s. interests as well as syrian interests. >> evan, one of the president's strong selling points this election cycle is how tough he's been on terror from taking out osama bin laden to taking out any number of high level al qaeda leaders. is al

in libya the people have denounced actually the u.s. consulate attack. we haven't seen the type of protests taking place in other countries systemically in benghazi. since that deadly attack the people of libya particularly in benghazi distanced themselves from that deadly incident. they rejected it and stood in solidarity with ambassador stevens who gave his life in the conflict. people respected him very much. it's a slightly different situation, but on the streets of libya people have denounced and rejektsed that particular at that attack. >> stay safe. with us is robin wright a senior fellow at the u.s. institute of peace and a distinguished scholar at the wilson center and also the author of "the islamists are coming." you told chuck todd these current protests are smaller than the ones in the arab spring and these current protests are a fight inside the islamic world. they have little to do with the west. explain that for me. >> well, i think we need to understand the broader context of what's happening across the region, and it's at a delicate time. this is a moment of transition for

and libya. new poll numbers including those within nbc news show that mitt romney is increasingly trailing his opponent, barack obama. in the state of iowa that gap has swelled to 8 percentage points that romney is trailing barack obama. his own wife ann romney was there just yesterday. the 47% number, that secret videotape where that number was basically used now by the president and everybody else who has heard it to attack him as being out of touch and effectively writing off 47% of americans as victims and government dependents. toure. >> peter, no gambling tonight, okay. >> reporter: yeah, right. >> let's put this in the spin cycle. when romney releases tax returns and professor kornacki is digging through stuff and he sees he did something that disqualifies him for being president by his own standard. tell him. >> we have a trademark made for only mitt romney moments. we've had a few in this campaign, and this is one of them. earlier in year when he came under pressure to put out tax returns, he put out one for 2010 and one for 2011. the estimate said i paid an ektive tax rate. over
arrangements in benghazi in particular in libya in general, i think the state of our knowledge, the state of our intelligence, our human intelligence in those countries is very much open to question. i think some of the president's assumptions about the arab spring are open to question. i think they're very important issues that the president needs to deal with and should be asked about. unfortunately for mitt romney, to take it back to the presidential campaign, this campaign is primarily about the economy. mitt romney has also insisted that it be solely about the economy. unfortunately for mitt, the first debate in denver on october 3rd is all about the economy. >> to bring it back to america and all about the economy, we're all talking about ohio. both candidates are in ohio today and this week. what is it about the makeup of ohio that makes it the ultimate purple state, the ultimate bellwether state? >> well, it's history and geographic and demographic. richard nixon, the late richard nixon always used to say it's always about ohio. >> that's a great intern nation. unkanne. >> it soun
